              Hardy in History: A Study in Literary Sociology

              First published in 1989, this study investigates Hardy not so much in terms of his novels but as he has been constituted as a major figure in English literature. Using Hardy as a case-study, it looks at how a `great writer' is produced in sociological terms, analysing the critica...l, cultural and ideological factors involved. By exposing this construction, the book seeks to release Hardy from the constraints imposed by orthodox literary history. This book will be of interest to those studying nineteenth-century literature.

              First published in 1979, this book looks at every aspect of the life and work of Elizabeth Gaskell, including her lesser known novels and writings - especially those concerning life in the industrial north of Victorian England. It shows how her work springs from a culture and soc...iety which pervades all she thought and wrote. An opening chapter explores her religion, culture, friendships and family. The major works are considered in turn and background material relevant to the novels' industrial scenes is presented. The process of literary creation is charted in material drawn from letters and by examination of the manuscripts. Her short stories, journalism and letters are also considered.

              Reflecting on Nana

              Reflecting on Nana (Paperback)

              First published in 1991, this book radically challenged the view of Nana as the story of an old fashioned femme fatale and reinterprets her as a feminist heroine who manages to overturn patriarchy. The author shows how Nana confronts the traditional social order and offers an alt...ernative version. This work gives not just an original approach to the heroine herself, but the story of Zola's struggle with his vision of her and the subversive values she represents. This book will be of interest to students of literature and feminism.

              Class in Turn-of-the-Century Novels of Gissing, James, Hardy and Wells

              Class in Turn-of-the-Century Novels of Gissing, James, Hardy and Wells (Hardback)

              By DeVine, Christine

              First published in 2005, this book argues that, due to political and ideological shifts in the last decades of the nineteenth century a new depiction of social class was possible in the English novel. Late-century writers such as Gissing, James, Hardy and Wells question the middl...e-class Victorian views of class that had dominated the novel for decades through the disruption of traditional novelistic conventions. With reference to relevant maps, journalism, artwork, photography and specific historical events, this book contextualizes novels by these writers within their historical moment. In doing so, it illuminates the relationship between fiction and history in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth century fiction. This book will be of interest to those studying late nineteenth-century literature and history.

              Disraeli the Novelist

              Disraeli the Novelist (Hardback)

              First published in 1981, this book attempts to approach a better understanding of Disraeli the man through his life as a novelist. It is not a series of literary criticisms, rather an attempt to see how 'fiction' and the act of 'fictionalising' played an important part in Disrael...i's life. The author discusses how Disraeli's novels in terms of how they reflected various stages of his life and development while assuming no knowledge of the, now mostly out-of-print, books on the part of the reader. This book fills the gap between the standard and comprehensive political biographies and the few literary analyses that appeared the twenty years prior to its publication.

              Women's Diaries as Narrative in the Nineteenth-Century Novel

              Women's Diaries as Narrative in the Nineteenth-Century Novel (Paperback)

              First published in 2009, this book investigates the cultural significance of nineteenth-century women's writing and reading practices. Beginning with an examination of non-fictional diaries and the practice of diary writing, it assesses the interaction between the fictional diary... and other forms of literary production such as epistolary narrative, the periodical, the factual document and sensation fiction. The discrepancies between the private diary and its use as a narrative device are explored through the writings of Frances Burney, Elizabeth Gaskell, Anne Bronte, Dinah Craik, Wilkie Collins and Bram Stoker. It also considers women as writers, readers and subjects and demonstrates ways in which women could become performers of their own story through a narrative method which was authorized by their femininity and at the same time allowed them to challenge the myth of domestic womanhood. This book will be of interest to those studying 19th century literature and women in literature.

              Picturing: Description and Illusion in the Nineteenth Century Novel

              Picturing: Description and Illusion in the Nineteenth Century Novel (Hardback)

              First published in 1979. Most of the great nineteenth century novelists strove to render in words the people and places that they invented and most readers of fiction picture in their imagination these characters and scenes. This book investigates both types of 'picturing', explo...ring the principles and problems concerned, and sheds light on the workings of fiction - reassessing a number of famous novels in the process. By so doing, this work relates the academic study of the novel to the writing and reading of fiction, and the teaching of creative writing. This book will appeal to students of literature.
